Crop Control can be applied to both male and female plants. We have seen certain strains of cannabis plants show symptoms of “pistil die back” when applying the product. This term is used when the pistils on female plants turn amber in color or show signs similar to dehydration.
The pistil is designed to deliver the pollen to the calyx for seed growth. We have done extensive testing with breeders in the cannabis industry to see if this “die back” has caused any negative side effects. All of our breeders reported no noticeable loss in seed weight, numbers, or loss in germination rate.
We feel very confident in using Crop Control on both male and female plants while breeding.
